Sony Promises 1,000 Backwards Compatible Games for PS3

Sony has finally confirmed that there will be 1000 PS2 games compatible for the new PS3 when it launches on March 23rd.

"The situation is changing everyday, but on March 23, we expect the list to include over 1000 PS2 titles," revealed Harrison, in an interview on Sony's semi-official blog ThreeSpeech.

Sony has sent out mixed messages regarding backwards compatibility. While it has noted that consumers expect backwards compatibility as a standard feature, the company has also stated it believes that early adopters will buy the console for the next-gen gaming experience."We're working to introduce a resource to the Web to detail which titles will have backwards compatibility. And as we make firmware upgrades, we will be able to add to that list," said Harrison.
